Pallisa District Woman Member of Parliament Faith Alupo breathed her last on Tuesday.
“Parliament has learnt with sorrow of the untimely death of Hon Faith Alupo, Woman MP for Pallisa District which occurred at Mulago Hospital,” Parliament announced on Twitter.
The NRM lawmaker became an MP in June 2018 after the former Forum for Democratic Change’s (FDC) Woman MP candidate for Pallisa, Catherine Achola was disqualified by the Electoral Commission from the race on grounds that the names she had used for nomination do not tally with those on her academic qualification.
She lost to Kevin Kaala Ojinga in the recently concluded NRM primaries.
Some reports have indicated that she had symptoms of the Covid19 though Mulago Hospital could not immeditately confirm the cause of her death.
4978 cases of Covid-19, 2317 recoveries and 56 deaths have been confirmed in Uganda.
